To reach Rifugio Carè Alto means to breath “authentic” mountain air.

Author’s recommendation

Don’t forget to take a picture of the small and picturesque church located just a few steps from the mountain hut. It was built during the Great War by Russian prisoners. The architecture of the minute building, in fact, shows evident traces of an “oriental” style.
